2011 - It's Now or Never - Maybe

Like most people, I have been considering my running (and other) goals for this year. While reading "Born To Run" I started thinking about one of the claims made by one of the researchers in the book: basically the claim is that runners steadily improve between the ages of 19 and 27 and then slowly decline - returning to their 19 year-old equivalent at the age of 64 - Yes, that's 64. Yeeha, I thought, this gives me hope, this gives me time. I figure I'm still somewhere in the 25 year-old runner range. So, what does that mean for my running goals - hmmm - Here I go: qualify for Boston AND New York City (because I'm tired of waiting to get in via the lottery). Ok. Off for a 15 miler. Time will tell;)
